Consider Your Child's Needs
Does your child work better in large groups or in smaller, more concentrated groups? Do they have any special learning needs, like reading comprehension or language acquisition? Identifying and addressing their individual needs will make it easier to find the right school.
Consider Your Child's Learning Style
Can your child comprehend written directions and obtain a clear idea of the task at hand, or do they learn by watching and doing? Learning styles vary from person to person, so don't hold your children to the same expectations when it comes to how they learn.
Consider Your Own Needs
Your child is the most important person to consider when it comes to switching schools, but you also need to consider your family's needs. What kind of commute are you looking at? Is bussing still an option? Will they need after school care? Can you afford tuition? These are all important factors to consider before deciding.
Keep Your Search Local
Keeping your child in an area they're familiar with and near their current friends will help them transition from one school to another as these early friendships will help your child build self-esteem and develop their social skills. When searching for a school, websites like Schoola hoop will even help you narrow down your search!
Visit the Schools
Of course, you can gain valuable information from reading online and speaking to school officials, but the best way to make an informed decision is to visit the school in question. Does it seem like a good fit for them? Did they have good interactions with teachers and students? Be sure to ask for their thoughts on the experience as well.

Hopefully these tips will help you find the perfect school for you and your child!
